Lady 18ers are back and “dancing on the course”

Tammy Bachofner

The Lady 18ers are back and started our season off by “dancing on the course;” our first game of the season was the Cha-Cha. Please check the board to see which teams managed to have the fanciest foot work with this fun game. During the month of December we will be playing Sucker in a Bucket, Odd/Even – Medallion 1, Crystal Ball, Criss/Cross and Criers Cup. No worries if you do not know what the rules of each game are, we provide very clear instructions with your score card each week, so just come have fun.

Following our first tee time of the season was our monthly luncheon held on the patio this beautiful day, arranged by Margaret McCathern, Karen Gilmore and Cindy Vig. Thank you to everyone who was able to participate and a very special welcome to our new members, Phyllis Haug, Glenda LaBocetta, Carol Garrett and Dana Marrs (not pictured). If you see them, please give them a warm welcome to our group and don’t forget we are always looking for new members, so invite your friends!

I also want to take a moment to congratulate two players on their hole-in-one during our off season play. Marilyn Klooster made her sixth hole-in-one on July 27 and Heather Verbitsky made her very first hole-in-one on October 25. Congratulations to both of you for your amazing skill! A friendly reminder to everyone: if you get a hole-in-one during ladies play at SunBird, please be sure to notify Cindy Vig.

Other important reminders: Next lunch group (January 2016) will be Jeanne Berte, Nancy Ratermann and Sue Koslofsky. Please contact Julie ASAP to make arrangements and then be sure to let Barb Wallace know the menu so she can get it posted on the sign-up sheet. And thank you in advance for arranging our monthly lunch menu!

Our lunch meetings are the first Tuesday of each month following our golf game.

Also – please take a look at your green golf guide handed out during our meeting. If you did not receive one, please contact Cindy Vig. Our guide has a full calendar of games each week as well as special events, tournaments and shootouts. This month I was asked to highlight our shootouts. If you have not participated in a shootout yet, please give it serious consideration. It is a great way to meet new people and gain confidence. All shoot outs cost $3, payable to Jackie Huyghebaert when you sign up and then $5 to the Pro Shop day of play.

Upcoming shoot outs include:

December 4 – Ladies Net (qualifying if needed will be December 1)

January 28 – Ladies Gross (qualifying if needed will be January 19)

March 4 – Couples Net (qualifying if needed will be March 1)

March 24 – Couples Gross (qualifying if needed will be March 22)

A huge shout out to our Board of Directors – President Cindy Vig, Vice President Karen Gilmore, Secretary Heather Verbitsky and Treasurer Jane Sirois. They have started our year off in wonderful fashion and have big plans for a very fun season!

We all look forward to seeing you on the course. Hit ‘em long and straight, but most of all have fun!

P.S.: If you have anything you would like highlighted in our news article, please contact me, Tammy Bachofner. My contact info is in our golf guide.

I will be away with family for the entire month of December, so I am wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
